Assuming the power cord was securely plugged in, the PS3's action can result from one of the following:
Faulty Power CordFaulty Power Supply UnitPossible shortage somewhere else on the unit cause it to immediately power off.

I would recommend contacting Sony customer service or to a local service repair shop if it's out of warranty. Unfortunately from the looks of the video there may not be an easy fix.

I push power and it shuts off right away... then i unplug power and the red light comes on ....still i press it and it goes off again


Hi russell,

The PS3 red light is a huge problem and it is caused by the GPU and the CPU overheating, all you need to do is stop the heat build up.

You have 2 ways of doing this:

You can send it in however bear in mind that for the fix you will have to wait for 4 weeks and also pay out $150 as well.

Or you can use a good PS3 Repair guide to fix the problem.

Make sure you check out these reviews of the top PS3 Repair guides first!

Cheers!

I was playing a game and the ps3 just randomly shut off then the red light starts flashing and every time I turn it on it shuts off right away


If the system turns on but then turns itself off, beeps at you and flashes it's lights at you then you have over heated the system. The GPU chip has probly pulled itself away from the board. This will require you to diassemble the PS3...

Why wont my ps3 turn on


Contact Sony, you've got a hardware problem, if the light is blinking red.

Make shure your ps3 is placed well fentilated so that the heat produced by the ps3 can get away from the console, theis expands the livespan of your ps3 greatfully.
Usual poeple get this hardware error when then the ps3 has overheated.

Succes.

Red light flashing/won't turn on


you are right about replacing the thermal compound between the cpu/gpu and heat sync. the gpu and cpu may need to be refolowed also. another tip is dont over tighten the screws. Tip: keep your ps3 flat do not keep it standing. when it is standing and heats up the thermal compound can start to move away from the heat sync. Keeping it flat will help extend the life PS3 at least from the overheating issue.

My ps3 keeps freezing?


The only thing I can recommend doing is backing up your info and then trying to get to the restore option under the ps3 before the green squares pop up, if you are not able then contact Sony before your lose your warranty.
